Biography from Crocker Art Museum Store:
Watercolorist. Born in Santa Rosa, CA on May 9, 1885, the daughter of Vine Hill residents, Ida and Nathaniel Griffith. Artistically inclined at an early age, Grace began painting while at Cogswell Polytechnic High School in San Francisco. She later studied landscape painting with several noted local artists including L. P. Latimer. Prior to 1920 she and her sister, Alice, maintained an art studio in Hawaii for two years. During her early life she was the wife of Charles B. Allison and sometimes painted under the name Allison Griffith." In 1919 the family home burned and with it many of her early paintings. Her father operated a successful fruit ranch and was credited with introducing the Gravenstein apple into the Sonoma area. He was also a close personal friend of horticulturist Luther Burbank in Santa Rosa; during the years 1920-21 Grace was engaged by Burbank to make drawings of his hybrids there. While visiting in Europe, her work was exhibited in Scotland and England where she was made a member of the Royal Society of London. After her marriage to A. 0. Harris in 1939, she lived in Berkeley, CA until his death in 1950. Returning to the family ranch at Vine Hill, she died there on May 13, 1955. Her works are mostly landscapes of Sonoma and Mann counties.
